His youngest son Louis, was living at the latter place in 1900. See Ontario Historical Society Papers and Records, iii, pp. 126-137.

This daughter Angelique was married nine days later to Jacques Jauvan; see Wisconsin Historical Collections, xviii, p. 508.
  13. Editor: We do not understand this signature, as the only Ignace Chichett mentioned in the baptismal record is the subject, only 8 years old. While I’ve seen a 14 year old sign, I have not seen one this young. Either Brown erred in his original translation, and placed Ignace where he meant to place Jacques Plomondone or there was an unmentioned witness named the same as the child.
